The Quality Management System has a primary goal of underpinning the successful delivery of the expert, impartial advice, technical work and innovative solutions we offer to our customers and stakeholders. By having the right culture, people and processes in place, we will deliver this successfully.

The way we’ll achieve this goal is to:

Embed a culture that:

  • Sets clear expectations for employees, linked to delivering value and
  • Encourages continual improvement through benchmarking, adopting best practice, developing our capabilities and learning from quality events
  • Develop partnerships with customers, suppliers, regulators and other interested parties to ensure a clear and common understanding of quality expectations and requirements.
  • Establish robust, efficient processes in a controlled management system, to deliver services and products consistently.

In line with achieving our goal, Quality Objectives will be set on an annual basis. These measurable objectives will address the risks and opportunities within the Organisation as determined by senior management and will be reviewed regularly to ensure continual improvement.

The Quality Management System will be monitored, measured, evaluated and enhanced regularly with systematic reporting and communication of the status and effectiveness at all levels.
